Reviews of Chandler Estate

I visited this facility
I had been to Chandler Estate many times. It was one of my favorite places. I looked at the apartments and they were beautiful. They had just recently been redone and they were really nice. They were roomy and homey. They had washers and driers where you could do your own laundry. I had lunch there several times and the food was delicious. The people were very nice and very helpful and friendly. They would make you feel like you were right at home and you were one of the group. It was like you went to a friend's home where you were a guest.There was one big disadvantage in the place that I had trouble accepting. It was the way it was arranged. You took your meals and activities in the Chandler mansion where the Chandler's lived and was an old beautiful estate. But you lived in an apartment, which was not connected in to the mansion at all. So, you had to walk from the apartment to the mansion and I couldn't walk a whole lot because I had back surgery and I had affected my legs. Although they had a golf cart that would take you to the mansion for the activities and your meals, I wouldn't like that because it could get cold here and had pouring down rain and I wouldn't want to go out three times a day to eat my meals.Their former director was such a wonderful person. She invited me to all their social activities and parties. However, when I learned that the she left and when I received a letter from one of the residents not too long ago that he's very unhappy with all the changes that they had made since they changed director, I was not considering them anymore. Although there were several disadvantage to it, I liked the place. For people who were active and could walk, I would recommend it. But if they were handicapped, I wouldn't.
